installed programs won't work
Posted on 2006-05-19
Recently I upgraded from W98SE to Windows 2000 Pro. Most everything seems to be fine with the upgrade. There are two problems that I can't seem to resolve.
 I'm the administrator and have an account set up for myself also as administrator. I can do all of the things necessary as administrator. I log in as administrator to load new programs, etc. The problem seems to be if I install a new program and type in the serial number (or whatever), the program says that it is now registered. I run it and all works fine. The next time I run the program it is unregistered again. I can go through the same process without success. Rebooting makes no difference.
 I did have on the pc a FTP program but since I upgraded to W2K the program didn't work. I uninstalled it and put on a newer version. I had to put in the sites I need to use the FTP on. Now I get a bad password notice (they worked before - typed in the same info as before).
On one site I maintain the password was changed by the server in an update on their side. So, I changed the password on the FTP program. The program shows the new password but sends out the old one.
I am totally puzzled and at a loss.
Can anyone give a fix or an idea what to do?
Thanks in advance,
